Anglesite, Tennantite
Small Cabinet, 8.3 x 5.6 x 5.9 cm
Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
An old-time, rich lead and copper sulfide ore specimen from the upper levels of the Tsumeb Mine. Euhedral to massive, grayish-white anglesite is richly distributed in a gray, layered and sintered sulfide matrix. Vertical veins of sparkly, black, microcrystalline tennantite cut the layered matrix. A bit of azurite is a nice accent. Ex. Rob Smith Collection.
